–Justin Bieber helped lead last night’s service at Churchome in Beverly Hills, performing with the church’s band.
–Constance Wu addressed her controversial tweets when Fresh Off The Boat was renewed in a new interview with the LA Times. “I had this moment of heat where I got upset because I had to give up a job I had been looking forward to and had been chasing for a while..I’m an actress—I can be dramatic.” She added, “I like that people are expressing their feelings about it, because it improved my awareness of what it means to be a public figure. I’ve had a back and forth about it. It’s the line between being a role model, but also authenticity.”
–Billie Eilish lashed out at Nylon magazine for not getting her consent to use her likeness on the cover.
–Richard Linklater is directing an adaptation of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along that will star Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein and be shot over the course of *20 years*.
-Lainey has a new blind riddle! The mentions of “stupid” and “infamous” make me think it’s not about Shawn/Camilla. Justin/Hailey? Miley/Kaitlyn?
-Meanwhile, here’s Shawn Mendes without a shirt and eating an avocado. Just because.
–Harry Styles likes the sitcom The Other Two. Good taste!
–Lindsay Lohan’s new song slaps, much to everyone’s surprise. (FF to the 2 min mark to hear a clip from it.)
-A Marriage Story starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver is getting absolutely glowing reviews. I considered using one of my TIFF tickets on this but it’s coming soon to Netflix. Plus, Noah Baumbach aren’t typically my jam.
-I don’t know how I missed CBC’s segment of Jam or Not a Jam with Lizzo but it’s great. She defends Nickelback (“It has a beautiful climax…The beat drop out? I think they get a lot of shit because he had a curly blond perm because this is an amazing song”) and discovers BTS (“Keep playing because I’ve never heard a BTS song. This is making me excited in a lot of weird ways!”)
-Netflix’s cheesy new rom-com Falling Inn Love is getting good reviews. Not that bad reviews would have stopped me from watching it, but still.
-This thread from Cole Hersch (creator of I’m The Dad Now) about the time he was accidentally cast on a dance show is gold.
–Meryl Streep play a widow investigating insurance fraud that turns out to be the scandal at the heart of the Panama Papers in The Laundromat trailer, coming soon to Netflix.
